Pasir Panjang Beach


     Pasir Panjang is a stretch of sandy beach in Balik Pulau, on the southwestern tip of Penang Island, facing the Straits of Malacca. Once Pasir Panjang was just a quiet fishing hamlet, with a handful of fisherman's huts. Today, the huts were gone, taken over by Kem Bina Negara, an outward bound camp.

     A winding hill road leads towards the beach of Pasir Panjang. The place is mostly frequented by picnickers and anglers during the weekend. The beach suffered some damage during the December 2004 tsunami, but has since been cleared of any tsunami debris. It is a good place for locals to relax and enjoy the beach away from the crowds on the north coast.

     Formerly, the only way to reach Pasir Panjang was through a dirt track which can be entered using a motorbike or bicycle. Since then, the track has been widened and tarred so that cars and vans can enter as well. Pasir Panjang has since become a popular picnic spot among the locals.

     Pasir Panjang beach is beautiful and many picnickers come here to swim at the pristine blue sea, to relax along the white sandy beaches & to rejuvenate. The jungle trail to Pasir Panjang is isolated and beautiful, offering wide range of spectacular views and seascapes. It has gentle gradients and ambles through the orchards and rubber estates which border the coastline. There is an uninterrupted view of the Straits of Malacca to the left and accompaniment by the chirping of birds along many stretches.

     Jungle trekking remains one of the favorite way to get to the beach. There are many well-trodden paths leading off to the coast (favorite place for fishing) as well as some winding hills that lead all the way to the beach.
